Eric Höweler of Höweler + Yoon joins the podcast to discuss the revitalization of the Coolidge Corner Theatre outside of Boston, the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers on the University of Virginia campus, and how a narrative-driven design process is leading the firm to redefine existing typologies.

“The project [the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers] was about history—history that’s still manifesting itself in the present. It’s a place to come together, something that a memorial can do that other forms of commemoration or repair cannot. Architecture can create a place for people to unite and see themselves as a community with a set of shared values. It’s really beautiful.”
